SOULI

Souli is a mountainous settlement approx 73km south east of Igoumenitsa. This autonomous association of villages is famous throughout Greece for their resistance to Ottoman rule in the 17th & 18th centuries.  Their resistance to the infamous Ali Pasha earned them nationwide respect. However, in 1803 they were finally overcome and the “Souliotes” were forced to move to many parts of Greece where many joined local resistance groups and continued their war against the Turkish invaders.
